    “Allah the Most High and His Angels and allcreatures of the Heavens and earth even the ants inside their ant-holes showermercy one those who teach things of benefit to others.” [Jame-Tirmidhi]

    37. Greet your Muslimbrother whether you know them or not

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), was asked as to which actions aregood for Muslims. Among the actions which he enumerated was this: "
    You should greet people whether you know them ornot."

    It is reported about Abdullah bin Omar that sometimes he went out of the houseonly to greet any Muslims he met and thus to increase his merit. [Muwatta ImamMalik]

    37.1 When enteringones house greet with salaam even when entering empty house

    The Prophet ((Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instructed his personal servant Anas(Ra) as follows:
    “Oh son! When you enter (your) house, greetyour family members; this act shall be of benefit for both you and your familymembers." [Tirmidhi]

    Even when entering an empty house one should greet with the intent that angelsare being greeted.

    37.2 Reward forgiving FULL salaam is 30 good deeds

    Imran bin Husayn (Ra) recounts that once he and others were in the presence ofthe Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) when a man came and said,
    "Assalamu alaikum", towhich the blessed Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)responded and said, "Ten" (i.e. the person who had greeted him had earned tenmerits); then another man came and he"Assalamu alaikum wa Rahmatullah", to which the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)responded and said "Twenty" (i.e. the person had earned twenty merits). Finally athird man came and said "Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatu", to which the exalted Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)responded and said, "Thirty" (i.e. theperson had earned thirty merits) [Abu Daud, Tirmidhi, Jami al Usul, p. 602. vol6]

    38. Love for the sakeof Allah and be under his shade

    One Hadith states,
    “Allah shall ask on theDay of Judgement, ' Where are those who loved for the sake of my Greatness?Today when there is no shade save Mine, I shall have them in My Shade.'" [Sahih Muslim: Kitab al Birr wa al Silah]

    Another tells us that
    "On the Day ofJudgement, those who had mutual love for the sake of Allah's Greatness shall beon pulpits of light and all shall envy them." [Jami' Tirmidhi, Kitab al Zuhd]

    39. We will be withthose whom we love even the Prophet (Peace be upon him)

    Anas (Ra) Quotes that someone asked our blessed and exalted Prophet (SallallahuAlaihi Wasallam),
    "When shall come theDay of Judgement?" Our Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked him "What preparation have you made for the Day?" The man said, "Nothing, but I have love for Allah and for His Messenger." The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, "You shall be (on that Day) with whom youlove."

    Anas (Ra) says that these words of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) sopleased us as nothing had ever done. He further said,
    "I have great love for the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)and with Abu Bakr (Ra) and Umar (Ra), and because of this love, I shall be intheir company, even though my deeds are not equal to theirs." [Sahih Bukhari, kitab-al-Adab, chapter Alamah al Hubb fiAllah]

    40. Magnify onesintention and get even MORE reward doing good deeds!

    The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:
    "Deeds (their correctness and rewards) depend upon intentions, andevery person gets but what he has intended." [Agreed upon]

    Ibn Al-Mubarak (Ra) said:
    "May asmall deed be magnified by the sincere intention; and may a great deed bediminished by the insincere intention"

    If we do not correct our intention before doing a good act or deed then we willnot get rewarded our deeds even if it is a great one, while we can magnify ourhumble deeds by a sincere intention.

        Re: Forty Very Easy, Quick & Rewarding Good Deeds for all of us to do Everyday!

        Doing good deeds and Remembering and glorifying Allah

        Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

        “Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)”

        [al-Nahl 16:97]

        It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Hasten to do good deeds before there come tribulations like pieces of a dark night, when a man will be a believer in the morning and a kaafir by evening, or he will be a believer in the evening and a kaafir by morning, selling his religious commitment for worldly gain.”

        Narrated by Muslim, 118.

        We as Muslims should always seek the help of Allah to do good deeds, and do we should try our best to do as many as we can. We should persist in doing these good deeds even if they are little, for that is better than doing a lot of good deeds then stopping.


        It was narrated that ‘Aa’ishah said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “O people, you should do whatever good deeds you can, for Allaah does not get tired (of giving reward) until you get tired. And the most beloved of good deeds to Allaah is that in which a person persists, even if it is little. If the family of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) started to do something, they would persist in it.”

        Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 43; Muslim, 782.

        Remembrance of Allah is the foundation of good deeds. Whoever succeeds in it is blessed with the close friendship of Allah. That is why the Prophet, peace be upon him, used to make remembrance of Allah at all times. When a man complained, "The laws of Islam are too heavy for me, so tell me something that I can easily follow," the Prophet told him, "Let your tongue be always busy with the remembrance of Allah." [Narrated by Ahmad with two sound chains, also Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah through other chains, and Ibn Hibban who declared it sahih].

        The Prophet, peace be upon him, would often tell his Companions, "Shall I tell you about the best of deeds, the most pure in the sight of your Lord, about the one that is of the highest order and is far better for you than spending gold and silver, even better for you than meeting your enemies in the battlefield where you strike at their necks and they at yours?" The Companions replied, "Yes, O Messenger of Allah!" The Prophet, peace be upon him,said,"Remembrance of Allah." (Narrated by Tirmidhi, Ahmad, hadith hasan)

        "Remember Allah abundantly, in order that you become successful"
        Quran (Surah 8: Verse 45)

        "Only in the remembrance of Allah (swt) will your heart find peace"
        Quran (Surah 13: Verse 28)

        "Those men and women who engage much in Allah's praise. for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a Great Reward"
        Quran (Surah 33: Verse 35)

        Allah (SWT) has commanded us to remember him always. He says:

        "Remember me, I shall remember you." (Qur'an 2:152)

        "They are the most wise who remember Allah, standing sitting and lying down"
        Quran (Surah 4: Verse 190)

        "Satan has mastered them and caused them to forget the Remembrance of Allah. Those are satan's party; and satan's party shall assuredly be the losers"
        Quran (Surah 58: Verse 19)

        "Whosoever turns away from the Remembrance of Allah, He will hurl him into a stern punishment".
        Quran (Surah 72: Verse 17)

        "Whosoever turns away from My remembrance, his life will be made tight and narrow on the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind"
        Quran (Surah 20: Verse 124)

        Therefore, you shall glorify Allah when you retire at night, and when you rise in the morning. All praise is due to Him in the heavens and the earth, throughout the evening, as well as in the middle of your day. [Room: 30:17-18]

        You shall glorify Him day and night. [Azhab: 33:42]

        Thus it is very important for us as Muslims to zikrullah, or remembrance, of Allah (SWT).

        The word zikr has many meanings. It means: Allah's Book and its recitation, Prayer, Learning and teaching, Du'aa, Remembrance of Allah in the heart, or in both the heart and the tongue, and even pondering over Allah's creation.

        The Qur'an says: "And establish regular prayer, for prayer restrains from shameful and unjust deeds, and remembrance of Allah is the greatest thing in life, without doubt." (29:45)

        In other words, zikr has an even greater impact in protecting us from shameful and unjust deeds than regular prayers do. This is because when a person opens his heart to Allah (SWT) and utters words in His praise, Allah (SWT) fills him with strength and inner peace, comforting his mind and his heart.

        The Prophet (PBUH) once said, "When any group of men remember Allah, angels surround them and mercy covers them, tranquillity descends upon them, and Allah mentions them to those who are with Him." (Sahih Aljami',#5608).

        When people do zikr, their hearts turn to the highest ideals and are free from the temptations of sin. Obviously this is true only if the words come from the heart and not just from the tongue.

        Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "The similitude of one who remembers his Rubb and one who does not remember Him, is like that of the living and the dead.'' [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

        "... And the men and the women who remember Allah much with their hearts and tongues. Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a great reward (i.e., Jannah).'' (33:35)

        “Almighty Allah says:

        “And We shall strip away all rancor from their hearts - beneath them will be rivers flowing - and they shall say: ‘Praise be to Allah, Who guided us on to this. Had it not been for Allah Who granted us guidance, we would not have found guidance. Surely, the Messengers of our Lord did come with Truth.’ Then a voice will cry to them, ‘Behold! This is the Paradise which you are made to inherit as a reward for your deeds.’” (Al-A`raf: 43)

        In this verse there is a beautiful description of the people of Paradise. Before they enter their blessed abode, Allah will purify them from any lurking sense of rancor or grudge that they might have had against each other. Then He will grant them a most happy place to live. Then there is a wonderful dialogue that will take place. They will praise Allah’s grace. They will not boast of their virtues or good deeds that led them to Paradise. However, Allah on the other hand will appreciate their goodness and will say that whatever they are receiving is not some crumbs of charity from Him, but this is a due recompense because of their own good deeds. This is a kind of mutual appreciation and gratitude between the human and divine that is the hallmark of this verse.

        Islam teaches that believers should do good deeds, but they should never say that we are purchasing Jannah by our good deeds. Jannah or eternal salvation is only because of Allah’s grace and love. However, Allah also does not say in the Qur’an, “You do not deserve Jannah,” but [rather], “I shall still give it to you because I love you.” Allah always says to the believers, “I shall give you the eternal bliss because I am willing to forgive your sins if your turn to Me; I appreciate your good deeds and I honor your good efforts.”

        We have just completed a full month of intensive worship and devotion. We fasted, prayed, read the Qur’an, gave zakah and sadaqah, and did many good deeds. This should not make us boast that we are virtuous people, but we should be thankful that Allah guided us to all this. It was due to His mercy and guidance that we were able to do all these good deeds and if He accepts these things from us, then it will be also due to His grace and love that we shall find His blessings in this life and in the life to come.

        True and sincere worship (`ibadah) creates humbleness and it always leads to more acts of goodness and virtues. If our Ramadan was a successful month of learning, then the effects of these good deeds will be with us and will remain for a long time. It is said:

        The recompense of a good deed is a good deed after it and the recompense of a bad deed is a bad deed after it.

        Almighty Allah says:

        "So hasten towards all that is good". (2:148)

        Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Hasten to do good deeds before you are overtaken by one of the seven afflictions.'' Then (giving a warning) he said, "Are you waiting for such poverty which will make you unmindful of devotion; or prosperity which will make you corrupt, or disease as will disable you, or such senility as will make you mentally unstable, or sudden death, or Ad-Dajjal who is the worst expected absent, or the Hour, and the Hour will be most grievous and most bitter". [At-Tirmidhi].

        The purpose of this Hadith is that before overcoming of the obstructions, one should do one's best to improve his Hereafter by means of good deeds lest one is deprived of good deeds by some obstruction.

        We should be trying to gain as many good deeds as we can before we are overcome by death. Death can be at ANY second so there is not a second to waste.

        We will regret EVERY second we wasted without doing a good deed and remembering Allah!


        Hadhrat Mu'az [RA] narrated Rasulallah (Peace be upon him) said: “The Inhabitants of Paradise will not be grief stricken or sorrowful about anything they did in the life of the world except for the time they spent without being in the remembrance of Allah(Tabaraani)

          Wudu Prayer

          Wudu or ablution may be performed for any purpose, and praying 2 rakaats after every wudu as 'tahiyyat-al wazu' is a highly meritorious act. Aqaba Ibn Amir has related that the blessed Prophet said, "When one performs ablution and performs it well and then prays 2 rakaats in such a way that his face, and also his heart are turned to Allah, Paradise becomes a certainty for him." (Muslim, Abu Da'ud, Nisai)

          Abu Hurairah has related that the eternally blessed Messenger of Allah said to Bilal, "Tell me from which of your acts you expect the most merit, because during Meraj (Assention), I heard your footsteps in front of me." Bilal said, "The act due to which I expect maximum mercy from Allah is that whenever during day or night, I have performed ablution, I have prayed as much as I could." (Bukhari and Muslim)

          It takes two to three minutes to pray 2 rakaats after ablution, but it is immensely rewarding. If it is time for one of the 5 compulsory prayers, then it is better to pray 2 rakaats tahiyyat-al wudu first, but if there is no time then fard or sunnah should be performed with (additional) intent of tahiyyat-al wudu. This might earn the merit due to tahiyyat-al wudu.

            360 Good Deeds = Ishraq Prayer

            Ishraq Prayer is a nafl prayer which is performed about 12 minutes after sunrise. It has only 2 rakaats but Hadiths are replete with the high merits of this prayer. Abu Hurairah relates that our Prophet - upon whom be eternal Peace - has said that "He who says Ishraq prayers without fail shall have his lesser sins forgiven even though they may be as numerous as foam specks on the surface of the sea." (Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah)

            Abu Hurairah has also related that the eternally blessed Prophet once sent some companions on jihad. They returned soon with much booty. Someone asked in surprise how the military expedition returned so soon with so much booty. The Holy Prophet said, "Should I not tell you about the men who would come back even sooner and still more booty?" Then he said, "He who performs his ablution well, then completes his fajr prayer and then (after sunrise) performs his Ishraq prayer, comes sooner and with greater booty" (Targhib p. 427. vol. I ref. Abu Yate ba Isnad-e-Sahib).

            A tradition related by Abu Dhar Ghifari tells us that a man has 360 joints in his body. To rid each from the hellfire, he should do at least 360 good deeds, which were subsequently described by our Holy Prophet. He said that saying Subhanallah once is one good deed, saying al Hamdulillah is another and saying La Ilaha Illallah is the third; to bid someone do good is a good deed and to stop someone from sin is also a good deed. Then after reciting the whole list, our Prophet said: -

            "And in place of all these good deeds, 2 rakaats prayed at the time of Ishraq can also suffice" (Sahih Muslim)

            Imagine this: 2 rakaats - which will take you less than 2 minutes, are equivalent to 360 good deeds.

            The best way to perform Ishraq prayer is to sit in place after fajr prayer and do dhikir and then leave after performing Ishraq prayers when the sun has risen. But if one cannot follow this, then he can say Ishraq prayers after coming back home or after doing something he has to do.

                  Dhikir of Allah during business or whilst working

                  Dhikir of Allah at intervals while engaged in business is a source of great reward and merit. It is mentioned in hadith that in a place where people are oblivious to dhikir, remembrance of Allah is like being steadfast in jihad, when others are running away. (Targhib, p. 193, vol. 3 ref. Bazar and Tibrani)

                  Abu Qabala, one of the famous followers (tabi'in) said that once two men met in the market and one said, "Come let us seek Allah's pardon when others are forgetful of Allah." The second man did it. The one of them died and the other saw him in a dream saying, "Allah had pardoned us on the very same evening we had met in the market."

                  So no matter where we are whether were at work, or studying at school, college or university or even if were in the market place or shopping if we remember Allah in places where people do not remember Allah much then surely we will be rewarded GREATLY!

                    Re: Forty Very Easy, Quick & Rewarding Good Deeds for all of us to do Everyday!

                    Helping a Muslim

                    To help a Muslim in some important work and to do it for his sake or to remove his troubles and worries is an act which has been promised much reward by the Prophet. Abdullah bin Omar said that our Holy Prophet said, “'One who helps someone in his need, Allah helps him in his work, and one who removes any worry or trouble of any Muslim, Allah, in return, removes anyone of his worries on the Day of Judgment'. (Abu Daud, Kilab-al-Adab, Bad-al-Muvakhat)

                    Telling someone the way, sharing someone's load or helping him with it, and all other acts of public service are included in the acts defined by this hadith. "Those who help others are truly much blessed," as the hadith says, “Best people are those who are useful to others.”

                    Hence all occasions of service, big or small, must be sought for; this increases one's merits. If someone is a victim of tyranny, it is the duty of every Muslim to save him from it.

                    A hadith tells us that the Holy Prophet said "A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim", and “A brother does not leave his brother helpless nor does he lie to him nor yet makes false promises, nor treats him with cruelty." (Tirmidhi: AI Birr wa-al- Silah)

                    Another hadith runs as follows, "If a Muslim is being insulted and degraded and his honour besmirched somewhere and another Muslim leaves him helpless, Allah would leave the latter helpless on occasions when he would need help. And if any Muslim helps him in when he is insulted and degraded, Allah shall help him when he would need help" (Abu Da'ud: Adab)

                      Good Treatment of Relatives

                      Good treatment of relatives is very pleasing to Allah and earns much merit. It has also been enjoined by the Holy Quran in several places and its merits described, for instance (AI Nisa': 36) Show kindness unto parents and unto near kindred.”

                      (AI Nisa': 1) “Be careful of your duty towards Allah in Whom you claim your rights and towards the womb that bore you.”

                      Abu Hurairah relates that our Holy Prophet, may he be eternally blessed, said that "He who believes in Allah and in the Day of Judgment, should treat his relations well.” (Bukhari and Muslim) And according to Anas, the Holy Prophet said that, “He, who desires his earnings to increase and his life to be long, should treat his relations well." (Bukhari and Muslim)

                      Good treatment means courteous behaviour, sharing in happiness and grief and helping them in a lawful manner whenever required.

                      However some points regarding this good treatment must always to kept in mind.

                      (1) Some people treat their relatives so well that they do not hesitate to sin for them in wrong belief that this is what has been enjoined on them. To share in sinning with a relative, to recommend them undeservedly, or to get them an employment for which they are not suited etc. are all unlawful in Islam.

                      Good treatment of relatives does not encompass committing sins for them. Hence when a relative seeks helps or support for any unlawful end, a polite excuse is called for.

                      (2) Good treatment of relatives is meritorious and rewarding only when it is motivated by the desire to earn Divine pleasure and not by any urge to show off or to keep up with others or to follow customs. Our present day society is shackled by customs and traditions; good treatment of relatives is usually motivated by the desire to save face or out of one-up manship; hence many things not really desired or liked are done due to the force of customs. Consequently, one must not allow himself to be motivated by such thoughts and if any good is done to any relative or kinsman it must be done only to earn Allah's pleasure, and with happiness and grace; nothing should be done to complete a formality or fulfil a custom.

                      (3) Since good treatment of kinsmen should be for the sake of Divine pleasure, one must never expect or wait for a good deed in return. Even when the return is not good, one should not abandon good treatment of his relations. Actually this is the acid test that shows whether the good treatment is for Allah or merely for show. Our eternally Prophet has said, “He does not treat his relations well who merely returns a good deed; he who treats them well even when they deny his rights really treats them well". (Sahih Bukhari)

                      Umme Kulthum bin Aqabah has related that the eternally blessed Messenger of Allah said, “The best sadaqah is the one given to inimical relatives.” (Hakim and Tibrani: AI Targheeb wa al Targheeb, p.120. volume 4)

                      Real and true good treatment is the one given even when one's relations treat him badly; this earns much merit. Abu Hurairah relates "Someone said to the Messenger of Allah 'I have some relatives whom I treat well, but they deny me my rights; I treat them well, but they treat me badly. I am forbearing, but they quarrel with me'. The Messenger of Allah said 'If this is really so then you are feeding them hot ashes. Allah shall always give you a helper.'” (Sahih Muslim).

                      It means that they were acquiring hell fire by their deeds, and they would never harm him; rather he would be helped against them by Allah.

                        Reciting Qur’an whilst in Qiyaam (Standing in prayer)

                        Abd-Allah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allah be pleased with them both), narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:

                        Whoever recites ten aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will not be recorded as one of the forgetful. Whoever recites a hundred aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the devout, and whoever prays a thousand aayaat (verses) in qiyaam will be recorded as one of the muqantareen (those who pile up good deeds).” (Reported by Abu Dawood and Ibn Hibbaan. It is a hasan report. Saheeh al-Targheeb, 635).

                          Bonus: Say the Dhikr after Making Wudu.

                          RasulAllah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, "If anyone of you, after perfecting his wudu, says, 'Ash hadu an laa ilaaha illAllah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan 'Abduhu wa Rasooluh (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his slave and Messenger), the eight gates of Jannah will open for him and he will be permitted to enter from whichever he wishes" (Muslim).

                            DOING OF GOOD DEEDS AND LEADING OTHERS TOWARDS RIGHTEOUSNESS:

                            Every good deed is sadaqah (an act of charity). (Bukhaari and Muslim)

                            And whoever guides others towards good is equal to the doer of good. (Tirmizi)

                            So let us invite others towards doing good and we will get the same reward inshallah

                              “By the time, verily man is in loss, except such as have Faith, and do righteous deeds, and join (together) in the mutual enjoining of Truth, and of patience and constancy.” (103:1-3)

                              In line with the above Qur’ânic injunction, we have to discipline ourselves by giving value to the importance of time. We must be prompt in doing good deeds, which will increase our faith and subsequently enable us to gain Allâh’s pleasure and mercy. We have to remember that on the day of judgement we shall be asked how we spent our lives, wealth and knowledge. In other words, we will be questioned on how we spent everything that Allâh I has given us as implied in the following ahadîth:

                              Narrated Abdullah Bin Mas`ud t Allâh’s Messengerr said, “A man shall be asked concerning five things on the day of resurrection: concerning his life, how he spent it; concerning his youth, how he grew old; concerning his wealth, whence he acquired it, and in what way he spent it; and what was it that he did with the knowledge that he had.” (Tirmidhî 5197)
